It’ll be a small miracle if next week doesn’t land me in an institution…
Wednesday is Angel’s third birthday. Her parents, who she hasn’t seen since Christmas, are coming. We have no idea what her reaction will be – or theirs. To add to the fun – and stress – we invited other members of Angel’s extended family, one of whom has already complained bitterly that the party is in the middle of the week, so far away from them, and insisted that it begin EXACTLY as scheduled so that they can get back home.
She coulda’ said no, right?
So, next week’s line-up goes something like this:
Monday: Drive up to Mass and pick up Auntie Sarah and Niko to bring back here. They have only one car, and Uncle Joey will need it for work. Buy party supplies.
Tuesday: Get set up. The Marvelous Ms. Kim will be here to watch the two rugrats while Sarah and I make trays of Grown Up Food and do general Party Prep. Pick up the cake.
Wednesday: Birthday. Gaiety, song-and-dance, here-we-go-’round-the-mullberry-bush….
Thursday: Take Sarah and Niko home, with a side-trip birthday surprise for Angel.
Friday (assuming no nervous breakdowns): Lunch for all of us with an old friend. At HER house, Saints be Praised!
Of course, the garden doesn’t go on vacation, any more than laundry, meal prep, and all the other household chores do. The Blog can, though…
So, barring any major disasters (or things I can’t wait to share!), My Little Corner will be back a week from Monday. I’ll pop in to check out your blogs, ’cause I’m addicted. When you see me push the “like” button, what I’m really saying is “I love you, but my brain is too mushy to form a cohesive sentence, much less a witty comment.”
See you in a week!
